LibriVox recording of Told Under a White Oak Tree, by Bill Hart's Pinto Pony and William S. Hart.
Read by Chuck Williamson.
An inside look into the wild world of silent movie cowboy William S. Hart... as narrated by his horse! This is a fascinating (if fictionalized) behind-the-scenes look into the wild, action-packed world of a Hollywood cowboy and stuntman. TOLD UNDER A WHITE OAK TREE is a charming children's book that not only gives us a fanciful account of Hart's career as Hollywood's premier western hero, but also tells a rousing adventure story of his exceptional (if somewhat smart-alecky) equine companion, who strives to become as renowned a screen legend as his master.
Caution: This book contains a couple of racial epithets that may be offensive to some readers. Turns out horses aren't very progressive or PC. (Summary by ChuckW)
